NEGATIONISTS

There are people refusing vaccines, medicines, planet Earth as a sphere, the Sun in the center of the Solar System, Evolution, Relativity, coincidences, chance, in short, advances in science and knowledge which have been proved to be facts. They are called negationists because the term stupid is offensive. These people refuse documented history, like the Holocaust and moon landing. They embrace conspiracy theories and present themselves as the heralds of truth.

It is safe to say they are the religion of today, since some of them create their own churches and cults. Negationism and religion share the same methods: blind faith, circular rhetorics based on false assumptions, the use of authority instead of rationality, the stimulation of intuition instead of analysis, constant propaganda and mass mobilization. Like cancer, they are fastly spread and powerful.

The main feature of these people is the combination of fear and laziness. They have the fear of losing their ground and the laziness to build a well studied and founded new ground by themselves. Instead, their option is to make castles in the air.

Keeping or gaining power with minimum effort is the sole motivation of negationists. The not so dumb are perfectly aware of their lies and roles in an industry of influence and control of individuals. They’re redneck mobsters.

The Most Stupid Question

“WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TO WORK WITH US?”

Because I’m unemployed, for Christ’s sake! I applied for this job and dozens of others! I need the money! I am capable of managing the bloody tasks you’re offering! I have the God damn hard and soft skills! I am clean and look good! I have the freaking initiative and the all sunshine smile on my face! I’m a badass! I am fast, competent, rigorous, eclectic and whatever the trending skills are! I am sincere and don’t kiss ass! I am the king of both competition and cooperation, choose the one that suits you best for each occasion! I am a moderately radical traditional innovative modern conservative liberal!

I did not choose. Behind propaganda, the choice is all yours.

Dystopia Is Now

Imagine a world where your life is at stake each time someone is less than two meters near you. Masks are mandatory for death not to happen. You are dangerous to the ones you love the most and they are dangerous to you. People can not touch each other. A disinfectant is to be available all the time. News show nothing but rates on disease and death.

Labs are racing for the cure. Hospitals are an inferno where exhausted doctors and nurses in airtight suits are overwhelmed with crowds of dying people in need of intensive care. Governments, politicians, banks and corporations increase their disputes for money and power, blind to the death and poverty around them. Demonstrations of workers and small business owners deprived of their means to survive get violent, irrational slogans denying the global danger of socializing are shouted, everyone loses their minds in waves of despair.

Coming on 2020, everywhere near or far away from you.
